The target in Trump's sights on Monday evening, however, was not President Bashar al-Assad, whose gas attack last Saturday was the ostensible reason for the gathering of this war council.
"We should stay the hell out of Syria", he tweeted at the time.
Russian Federation entered Syria's civil war in 2015 and has backed the Assad regime.
Trump says that last Saturday, Syrian President Bashar Assad deployed chemical weapons in what was a "significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime".
Anatoly Antonov, Russia's ambassador to the USA, said, "We are being threatened". The remaining 11 countries have spent months renegotiating a pact that lacks the USA market and finally agreed to a sweeping multinational deal this year. As far as now, there are no reports saying Russian Federation responded militarily to the airstrikes as they had threatened to do earlier this week.
Mr. Trump met with his national security team at the White House Wednesday afternoon to discuss options for striking the Syrian regime. Officials who defy federal law on the basis of local and state autonomy seem to be resurrecting the Civil War-era "nullification doctrine" and states rights sovereignty claims that were rendered null and void by the Union victory in 1865. No formal approval was sought.
Vice-President Mike Pence warned Syrian authorities that the new cases of use of chemical weapons will not remain without response from the United States.
The NYPD said it is closely monitoring the situation in Syria. We saw the anguish that can be unleashed and the evil that can take hold. "These offensive strikes against Syria are unconstitutional, illegal, and reckless", he tweeted.Читайте также: Nicki Minaj Shares A Vertical Music Video For "Chun-Li"
The Trump administration again refrained from naming any major trading partners as currency manipulators on Friday as it pursues potential tariffs and negotiations to try to cut a massive trade deficit with China. To do otherwise, the letter said, violated the separation of powers outlined by the Constitution.
As his eyes narrowed and his jaw clenched, Donald Trump made clear he was ready for a fight. It authorized use of force against anyone involved in those attacks or related forces, and has been used to justify USA military actions since then, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Well I think you have to take it seriously but I think there is an enormous chance that this is simply posturing or a tactical decision taken to placate concerned governors and senators from agricultural states that could be affected by China imposing tariffs", said Charles Finny, a Wellington-based trade consultant and a former New Zealand government trade negotiator.
Democratic leaders were more critical. On Tuesday, he said a decision would come that night.
"President Trump continues to conduct military operations without any comprehensive strategy or the necessary congressional authorization".
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said lawmakers bear some of the blame, noting that Congress has "willingly abdicated its role in approving or disproving military action".
Trump "is a person who could change temperamentally, so he may say something different the next day", Aso said.
The uncertainty has real consequences for the USA economy and global markets.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
